Baby Irish Crochet Lace 



This volume continues our i" 1 Album How to make Irish 
Crochet Lace in which the directions for the different stitches of 
this lace have been given. 

Baby Irish Crochet Lace is worked as the other but it is finer. 
Finer thread is used and round the sprigs which are smaller, 
rows of stitches with picots are usually worked instead of the 
filling. 

Baby Irish Lace has always been very much in vogue for trim- 
mine babies and children's garments and also lingerie. It is also 

o o o 

very effective for trimming blouses and can be mixed with other 
kinds of lace or with embroidery. 

Materials required for the 

Making of Baby Irish Lace 

Crochet Needle. Irish Crochet Lace is worked with thesame 
steel crochet needle which is used for ordinary lace.

employed for Baby Irish Lace are 100, 120. 1 40. [60.

or coid than the working thread and is used as a padding for 

certains sprigs. The cotton used for this cord is the Cordonnet 

6 /ils c.-l). a la Croix Art. 20 . balls of 25 or io grammes. The 

<! cotton used as a cord for Bab} h"ish Lace is usually n° 5.

This kind of lace is absolutely different from classical Irish 
Lace. 

It is a handsome work, and is the reproduction of old pieces. 
The working is not difficult. The sprigs are made separately, then 
joined together by a rilling of ch. and p. 

Each sprig is made of a heavy and open work wheel, forming 
the centre with 3 flowers. The flowers usually have 5 small leaves, 
some only have 3. For the joining, a flower must sometimes be 
omitted, and sometimes a detached flower is used; you can thus 
work the shape you wish. 

All sprigs are begun in the same way. 

Over the cord wound 3 times round the handle of the crochet 
needle or on a very narrow net mesh, work : 

/ row. — 24 d. st. worked very tightly — join the last to the 
1 -' with a tight st. 

2 row. — Without the cord — but leaving it underneath — 
3 ch. - 1 d. st. into the 2 nd nearest st. of the ring — repeat 
1 1 times. 

?- row. — As the 2 nd row, thed. st. is worked into the holes 
of the previous row.

rings are sewn on 

the small ones which form the centre of the flower, and on the 

heavy and open worked circle.

chet needle and fill it with d. st. worked very closely. 

While working draw the st., then on a crochet needle or on a

mesh make the ring quite round; the wrong side of the work is the 
right side of the ring. 

To fill these small rings there should be about 25 d. st. Baste

has been traced out, and with the same thread, work a filling of

spaces.
